I believe that from testing perspective both approaches are equivalent.
The spec I propose *is* only another way to control src of an image.
The only difference is that I don't expose the <img> to scripts.
That may make it even simpler, because you can't have odd cases like author
moving/removing the controlling img or setting values directly on img that
conflict with picture's definitions.
